FATMAP difficulty grade
About half way down Freefall, there is a traverse into the woods to skiers right.
This leads out to F.I.S.
About half way across this traverse, there is a steep drop into the woods.
This can sometimes be roped off and anyone who’s skied it knows why.
Freefall Glades are extremely tight and rocky, even on the biggest snow years it can be hard to negotiate these woods.
After the first half of the glade, you have the option of taking a left or a right.
To skiers right there is a mandatory drop, to skiers left there’s a bunch of stumps and rocks.
In the early season there is a rope that can be used to help negotiate this section, but later in the year this can be burried.
The bottom half of the glade is a little wider with small evergreens that let in sunlight.
Freefall glades end on F.I.S.
